That's what I call a niche market, . Nice. Are there many offerings and producers? Do you have a large collection or just go bottle to bottle? Have you tried the Glenmorangie sherry cask scotch? I've tried a few funky cask offerings from Glenmorangie (and others), it's good and definitely imparts some subtle to moderate flavors.I'm mostly a sherry cask finished scotch drinker. Give Glendronach a shot (the 18yr is amazing but the 12yr is still one of my favs).

Want to give me some Gin suggestions? I have a bottle of Tanqueray and that's it.I picked up an Italian gin that was very citrus forward, hate it. Cant even bury it in a cocktail, its just odd to my palate. I've been on Hendricks for years and recently started drinking Dillons, feeling I should support Ontario. Its adequiet at best.
I think you can make sloe gin the same way you’d make flavoured vodkas by steeping the fruit in the vodka. The problem is getting your hands on sloe fruit.Want to give me some Gin suggestions? U have a bottle of Tanqueray and that's it.
Looking to pick up a bottle of Plymouth Gin since there is a crazy history and backstory to the brand and distillery.
I have some cocktails in my cocktail books that call for a Sloe Gin. So, I would like to pick up an example of that to add to my bar.
Got some Gins to recommend?

Got a list of Rums you recommend? We have a smattering of various Rums in our liquor cabinet. Another fun rabbit hole to fall into.I keep Hendriks in the house, Dillons because he's local and a big bottle of Beefeater cheap gin for when there are 10 people standing around and you get an order for a round of G&T's .
I'm not sure when 10 people may stand around again LOL, but I'm ready.
Rum is my goto, and we also keep 60's of 'ok' rum so when things really get going , only the cheap booze is going along. I'm thrifty like that
Plus 1not an Islay fan
smells like a dirty band aid that's been left on too long
Jura is thoroughly decent starter scotch
Dalwhinnie is one of my faves
and MacAllan 18 is pure sex in a bottle
I don't buy into the premium vodka thing
Stoli still works well for me in mixed drinks
I'm a fan of Flor de Cana. The 7yr is excellent and amazing for the price. 12, 18, 25 are all excellent but very different as I've tried them back to back. It'll be personal preference which you prefer. The 25 has an almost cognac property to it for example.Got a list of Rums you recommend? We have a smattering of various Rums in our liquor cabinet.

I have 15-20 bottles of scotch, they're all across the spectrum. Here's a bottle you may like. It's Glenmorangie from before the current Quinta Ruban offering... supposedly smoother and better.Sherry cask finishing is pretty common.
The Glenmorangie Lasanta (sherry cask) is pretty good. I enjoyed it. They have a bunch of other offerings finished in various casks I wasn't a fan of (one finished in bourbon and one finished in white wine cask).
I have the Glenmorangie 18yr and it's probably my favourite in my collection.
I have a couple MaCallan 12yr sherry casks. Always a favourite.
Glengoyne 10yr could be a solid try. It's one of my favourite reasonably priced scotch's. Has hints of both sherry and bourbon which actually works really well. LCBO jacked the price a while back but it's still reasonable.
Bowmore is another solid try off the top of my head.
There's a lot of variety in Gin. I found this a good read and start.Want to give me some Gin suggestions? I have a bottle of Tanqueray and that's it... Got some Gins to recommend?
